Brennecke's is decidedly casual and fun, with a busy bar, windows overlooking the beach, and a cheery blue-and-white interior. It specializes in big portions in a wide range of offerings including ribeye steak, burgers, fish tacos, pasta, shrimp, and the fresh catch of the day. Can't decide? Then create your own combination meal. This place is especially good for happy hour (3 pm to 5 pm and 8:30 pm to closing), as the drink and pupu menus bring the prices closer to reality.
The fare is fair, but the ocean view and convenient location compensate for the food's shortcomings. There's a take-out deli with shave ice downstairs.
